Ahem, I believe that's MY role.

And I'd also settle for Minister of Propaganda/EEOC compliance officer (xthread pts).

Listen, you're among friends here.

I don't blame her one bit for wanting to conceal her identity. Also, if she'd signed to ticket in the name of a trust that would've been fine. She wasn't aware that was an option. I hope she's successful.

And you'll need a CPA to handle your taxes, right?

You're in the wrong thread! lol

You can be the guy who dresses up as a Lt. General and lands his helicopter at various corporations and college campuses to procure really hot chicks for clandestine missions.

Youíll need an airport/airfield manager to make sure the hundreds of flights a day donít run into each other.

Iíve always said the first thing Iíd do would be to set up a trust and then hire good lawyers and tax lawyers to watch over each other (redundancy). Not worried about my name getting out because there are over 8000 others in the US with my name. Plus, I have an another one picked out just in case.

However, I still would not sweat it if it did get out. Saw a good ole boy from WV who looked like Dog the Bounty Hunter talk about winning a 9-digit lottery. Claimed everyone came out of the woodwork to hit him up when announced but he was smart. Trusted it up for himself and immediate family and hired good attorneys and accountants and they lived only off the annual interest / dividends.

The funniest comment about it was that they decided to move to West Palm Beach. Said he may be rich but nothing like most WPB residents... eg Trump, and doesnít stick out like a sore thumb there like if he had stayed in WV.

I'm in brother!

All kidding aside, with enough Lottery capital and Socnet connections, we could be a force in any endeavor.

Don't forget to throw in some Singapore and Philippine Airlines talent, as well.

Can someone with more legal knowledge than me explain something; if this goes to court, won't the court documents Ė and her name Ė be public record?

Plenty of professionals who could help her do that. I'd school her if she paid me or could put her in contact with someone who specializes in it.

I've gamed this one out a bit.

I'd take some of the money out immediately for fun. Maybe 10% of a smaller jackpot or less if it's large.

The rest of the money would be locked up in a Dynasty trust. With the amount of some of these payouts, I could ensure the financial stability of my family for several generations.

I think my wife and I would be taking a year-long tour of the world if we won. Give things time to cool off and then I'd eventually resume life as normal. I love what I do and I don't think that I'd want to quit. I'd probably just be more selective about what clients I bring on.

LP: Setting up shop at that resort on Snake Island since Trofimov doesn't need it any more? With that kind of money, Hun Sen will sign off on anything you want.

ETA: Without the EPA, getting rid of all the mosquitoes and leeches on the island should take a few hours. I know how much you love mosquitoes and leeches, though...
